„Super Express” interviewed President of Warsaw Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, who mentioned the recently established cooperation between the City of Warsaw and Employers of Poland.
– At the initial stage of the Warsaw Start-Up Space project, we focused on the educational and developmental aspect and organized a series of meetings and workshops at the Smolna Entrepreneurship Centre. The series drew over 500 participants. We are also working hard with our partners to elaborate a cohesive system of solution conducive to the development of innovative business initiatives. Warsaw Start-Up Space is also open to other institutions, such as universities, business support organizations and all other interested parties – says President Gronkiewicz-Waltz.
– With the intention of cooperating with employers more closely, on November 20th we signed a letter of intent with Employers of Poland, with the aim of popularizing entrepreneurship, creating climate and conditions for using private capital to provide financial and institutional support for new companies and development of start-ups in the capital city. I see that entrepreneurs have a hard time gaining access to instruments for financing innovative initiatives. There is also a lot to be done when it comes to stimulating the cooperation between science, business and public administration – states Gronkiewicz-Waltz.
